Me and my coworkers really don't like this tool. Usability is bad, the process of setting it up to use a new DB is tedious (having to find and copy the drivers and tell Squirrel SQL where to find the drivers), it frequently freezes when doing simple things like just pasting a query into the query window, and doesn't respond to commands to close it, you get annoying prompts when closing it. But, at the same time, it's pretty much the only we've found so far that does what it does. It's just overall annoying to work with, but it's the only thing I have that does the job I need, so I grudgingly use it.

I am looking for a good replacement. Perhaps Dbeaver will be good.
